On keg at Lincoln United Football Club Bar - Clear gold, lasting white head. Looks great, but then it is just foamy Carling. Weird mouthfeel.

Most people who have commented have never really tried this beer. Unless fully chilled correctly it should not be drunk at all, and never from a can!! The beer needs to be put in a glass to be appreciated, either from a can, or better still on draft when you can find it. This is a Premium beer and miles away from the usual lager rubbish on sale. Never mind all the nonsense about it tasting like everything unreal in the World, it is a damn good beer, and trust me, it has a kick which can creep upon you if you are used to drinking pedestrian concoctions. Simply do yourself a favour, get some and drink it properly, it will not disappoint!!

alexmate (166) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2016
A fairly average lager, better than the standard Carling, but suffers from being too watery. Looks: Big creamy head, pale transparent yellow colour. Nose: not much going on - some grass, light hops and weird sour notes. Taste: light grain, straw, hops, sweet honey on the aftertaste. Its OK, but nothing special.

The_Osprey (7812) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2016
Can shared at Leightons. As Carling Premier, 4.7% BB June 2016. Clear yellow, still, big foamy white head. Aroma is corny, cardboard, airy. Crap. Body is medium to light, smooth, light carbonation. Taste is light and watery, corny, cardboard, a hint of malt, watery finish with no real bitterness. Well it doesnt quite reach the heights of crapness that normal Carling achieves. But its still watery and awful.

Scopey (14219) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2016 Can thanks to Dirty Danny. It pours clear rich gold with a small off-white head. The nose is toasty cheap grain, buttered cheap white bread, grain husk, oily, fatty and generic sweetness. The taste is slick, sweet, oily, buttered white bread and burnt plastic, dirty grass with a short, sweetish finish. Medium body, average carbonation and creamy mouth - feel. Fucken fuck.

Leighton (20800) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Can shared in London - many thanks to Daniel. Pours crystal clear gold with a thick, creamy white head. Cheap cereal in the nose, some grain, dough. Light to medium sweet flavor with hints of paper, more cereal, white sugar, grain, low bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with notes of cereal, crackers, paper, sugar. Pretty classic macro pale lager.

Can ... split at Bespin towers, thanks to very soiled Danny, 21/01/16. Clear golden with a well appointed off white covering that retains well. Nose is pale malt, straw, grain, papery notes. Taste comprises much the same, straw, grain, pale malt, papery licks, trace of vanilla. Medium bodied, smooth and massaging on the palate. wooha !

Cunningham (7715) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2015
Golden color with a creamy white head. Looks allright. Quite malt dominated beer. Unfortunaltely a very weak flavor. Waterish actually. Would have expected more from a 4,7% beer. Nothing I will recommend.
[Can from ASDA in Liverpool, England]
